Growing Precincts Together - Rosalie Village

Rosalie village precinct

In 2022-23, Council started providing hands-on support to assist the Rosalie Village retail precinct as part of the Growing Precincts Together program. This project was completed in October 2023, however Council is providing ongoing support to local businesses to raise the profile of this iconic precinct, including launching a precinct website.



Promote is one of the four key objectives in the delivery phase of Growing Precincts Together. Council engaged Style Magazines to deliver a suite of online promotions in May and June 2023 to promote Rosalie Village as a destination. This includes online articles, Instagram carousels, reels and a tag and share competition.

Council offered businesses in the Rosalie Village precinct the opportunity to apply for free one-on-one support programs delivered by expert providers. Topics included:

  • digital marketing consultations
  • business coaching
  • support for food businesses.


For the refresh deliverables, Council offered 2 programs where expert providers assisted businesses to refresh the look of their business. The programs were:

  • visual merchandising
  • shopfront makeovers.


Council sponsored the 'Hidden gems of Rosalie Village' month-long activation which aligned with the Indiana Jones film release at the local cinema. For July 2023, Rosalie Village welcomed visitors from near and far to explore all parts of the precinct in search of hidden treasures. With a treasure map in hand, visitors deciphered clues to complete tasks and enter a competition with over $5000 in prizes.


The 'understand' phase is the foundation of the Growing Precincts Together program. Council documented the businesses and vacancies in the Rosalie Village precinct in 2022. This was followed by a desktop digital audit to gather directory information for all businesses in the precinct and identify community groups in the area.


In the 'engage' phase, Council hosted an information session in February 2023 to present Council’s insights from the understand phase and to launch the one-on-one support and refresh programs that businesses in the precincts could apply for.

In 2022-23 Council also hosted monthly coffee connects for businesses in the precinct to catch up with each other and Council officers to share ideas for the precinct, network and provide feedback. The coffee connects were held at cafes in the precincts, and businesses in the precincts were given the opportunity to express their interest in hosting a coffee connect.

The team also sent regular email updates to all businesses in the precinct to update them on opportunities through the project and seek feedback.
